Welcome to Aviation Creation, home of the original "First Solo Flight" Commemorative Challenge Coin.
Challenge coins date back to a World War I pilot who
had coins minted with his squadron's unit insignia. To read about how
this coin saved the pilot's life, click on over to the Challenge Coin History page.
Aviation Creation's First Solo Flight commemorative challenge coins are made from high quality polished brass. The coin's front face has a
prestigious diamond cut edging circling an airplane and the reverse
side has an area that can be engraved with the memorable first solo
flight's details such as aircraft tail number, date, pilot's name,
flight school or other special message. Each coin includes a velvet gift pouch and protective sleeve to present the coin wrapped in the honor it deserves for such
a milestone event. Visit our First Solo Flight Coin page to view more.
